  • Nominate 3 of your friends to do the same after you dip
  • Share your dip to this special social media page to encourage momentum:

This incredibly worthy cause calls for a BIG SPLASH.

Whether it’s dipping a toe, or plunging into the cold depths of Lough Derg or Lough Corrib, or the Atlantic Ocean, we wish to call on all members of our community to get out and Dip, Dunk or even Dive!

Cancer Fund for Children’s motto “to ensure that no child faces cancer alone.”

It is with help from you, the people of our community, and beyond, that we can help raise the essential and crucial funds for the children of Ireland that face an unknown future.
